We get it. You don't like Amazon, you don't like the Kindle, you like Sony.

Now why don't you just go back to the Sony forum and stop thread crapping?

With all due respect, we try to keep it a little more civil here.

If you look around the forum, you will see it said many places that eink does not have backlighting because the eink is not opaque and the light would not shine through. So it's not partially correct that eink cannot have backlighting. It's fully correct. This is not just about the Kindle. No eink based device can have backlighting be it the Kindle, Sony, Gen3, BeBook, etc. So how it is wrong to give correct information?

I understand.

But thread crapping is considered rude no matter where you go, and I called him on it.

I don't object to his having an opinion, or even his voicing his opinion.

But he entered a thread that was obviously targeted toward Kindle aficionados and proceeded to spew anti Amazon and anti Kindle vitriol while adding nothing substantiative to the thread whatsoever.

That is pretty much the definition of thread crapping.

Before 'calling' someone on what you perceive as 'thread crapping', I would suggest you sit back and watch the parade for a while.

This isn't the amazon Kindle discussions forum, its a world wide forum, with all e-book devices represented.

We allow everyone to voice their objections and opinions without being censored, as long as they keep it civil.

It is certainly true that no e-ink device can be back-lit. That is an incontrovertible fact.

However, some of the earlier posts were expressions of opinion, not facts. Might I suggest that a more temperate and measured expression is more likely to lead others to consider a point of view? As in the saying, "You catch more flies with honey than with vinegar."

What an interesting thread, desertgrandma.

Well, with all due respect I have frequented numerous forums for many years, too many to mention.

I feel that his behavior in fact wasn't civil. I believe that if I entered the Sony E-reader forum and behaved similarly I would stand a good chance of receiving a similar admonishment.

Thread crapping is thread crapping, no matter what forum you frequent.

I have said my piece, I am content to move on.

This isn't 'numerous forums". It isn't a Sony Forum, or a Kindle forum. Its MobileRead, an every e-book reader forum.

And we stay civil.

I appreciate you coming to my defense, as it was my post about backlightling to which JSWolf was responding. However, I didn't take any offense to JSWolf's comments (plus I'm pretty good at defending myself) I sincerely hope you'll stick around and enjoy the forums, and if you look at the statistics under people's names you'll see that JSWolf has been here a long time, posts a lot, and is well respected.
